DOZENS of firefighters spent more than five hours tackling a huge blaze at a disused kitchen and bathroom business.

Crews from Huddersfield, Elland, Brighouse, Dewsbury, Hunslet and Mirfield, and an aerial fire engine from Bradford were sent out to the incident at Graham's Kitchens and Bathrooms, on Leeds Road in Huddersfield, at about 9.30pm last night.

Watch manager Gary Hatton, from Huddersfield, said the fire was thought to be suspicious.

He said: "There were several spots where the fire had started, which straight away makes you think that something isn't right.

"It also made it quite a difficult one to deal with. The building was heavily smoke-logged and there was lots of smoke coming out of the top."

The four-storey building, near the junction with Thistle Street, is currently empty.

The fire crews cleared the premises of smoke and put out the flames.

No-one was hurt in last night's incident, which finished at about 3am.

Police and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service's investigation unit are now looking into the cause of the blaze.
